      Hey Ferdy, Love The Video! Excellent Training Video! I did run into a problem during this process though. When Adding The Video Player, I add my Vimeo Embed code but for some reason when i open the page in another tab the video player doesn't appear at all. I also Get a message in the optimizepress element editor "If you need to embed Wistia or EVS code, please use Custom HTML/Shortcode element and paste embed code there. Unfortunately EVS embed code is not compatible with our OverlayOptimizer element." What Shall i do?
